The Relix is the latest in a long line of race-ready road clincher tyres from Maxxis. The Relix uses our lightest and most supple 170 TPI casing [ONE70] along with SilkShield puncture protection, which protects both the sidewalls and the underside of the tread.
- ONE70 TECHNOLOGY
- SILKSHIELD PUNCTURE PROTECTION
SilkShield offers protection from bead to bead whereas Silkworm is found under the tread only. SilkShield provides an additional level of protection for sidewalls as well as under the tread.
THREADS PER INCH (TPI)
The number of threads that cross through one square inch of a single ply of the tire’s casing. Lower
TPI gives better puncture, cut and abrasion resistance but is heavier. Higher TPI conforms better to the terrain, offering a smoother, more comfortable ride while reducing the weight of the tire. Maxxis TPI ratings are the threads-per-inch of a single casing ply, as compared to some competitor
The most important part of a tire is arguably the rubber compound within the tread. By changing the amounts of various components of the rubber formula, engineers can make two identical looking tires perform completely differently.
This tyre uses Dual Compound – Two compounds used within the tread of select tires to offer lower rolling resistance and increased cornering grip.
Foldable beads also keep the tire secured to the rim but are lighter weight and easily transported. The bead is made of spun aramid or Kevlar® fibres
